USAT has many of the greatest elite paratriathletes the world has ever seen.
Just like the rest of USA Triathlon, there are paratriathletes of all levels: beginners all the way to competitive racers. Although paratriathletes have some additional needs and a slightly different set of rules that govern their races, they seek no extraordinary waivers or undue assistance that would set them apart from the field. In fact, it is their ability to compete at every USAT sanctioned race that makes them a vibrant part of the USAT family.
